Due to massive Industrial development which India has seen over the last
two decades is attracting lot of FDIs (Foreign direct Investment).
The Indian foreign exchange regulations consider the investments made by NRIs as
“Foreign Investment”. India continues to attract foreign investors and NRIs as
living in a foreign country has its advantages. An NRI works with developed
economies of the world and earns in dollars. Many NRIs have a doubt that is
living in a foreign country restricts them from investing in India, which clearly
not the case.
So, let’s discuss the best available options for NRIs to invest in India and
secure their future.
An NRI makes investment with the purpose of allocating money in order to secure future
benefits or in financial context is known as returns. Investment gives current and
future stability assurance, which is very important also as the life has become
so unpredictable, every individual must secure their future by making investments.
To secure the finances people make investments all around the world.
People always look for good investment options through which they can
get higher returns in the future. But there are many Non-resident
Indians who are working abroad, are unaware of the fact that if they
are not physically living in India, but they can still invest their
money in India.
So, below we have a list of few Investment option for NRIs in India:
Mutual funds are not as risky as investing your money in stocks, at the same time they are also not as
safe investing option as fixed deposit schemes. But they can offer returns at a much higher rate than bank FDs.
You can find a large number of funds in the market to invest and you can choose any fund out of them as per
your risk capacity and financial goals.
One thing to note that NRIs can invest in mutual funds only through their NRO or NRE Accounts and you can
only invest in India Rupees and not in foreign currencies.
Public Provident Fund is a safe option of investment as it is a government-backed scheme.
Under this scheme Non-residents and resident Indians both are allowed to invest in Public Provident Fund (PPF).
The current rate of return has been fixed to 7.1%. There is a lock-in period of 15 years and also a limit of INR 1.5
lakh a year on investment. It also offers tax deductions under section 80C.
The Indian Real Estate is the most preferable investment option for Non-resident Indians. Lately,
India has become the most appealing destination for investments and has drawn global attention.
The boom in prices of commercial and residential properties in India is also one of the reasons
behind Indian real estate grabbing more and more attention of NRIs. Also, NRIs usually feel safe
and emotionally connected by owning a land in their Motherland.
Government securities are usually considered as a low-risk investment option.
NRIs can also invest in Government securities through a separate channel introduced
by the Reserve bank of India known as “Fully Accessible Route” (FAR) which allows
NRIs to invest in specific government securities (g-sec). Govt. issues a bond or
debt commitment with an assurance to pay back upon its maturity date.
Fixed deposit is no doubt a very common and simplest investment option for an
NRI and it is not only popular among the Indian residents, but also among the
Non-Resident Indians. NRIs can invest money into fixed deposits only through
their NRO, NRE or FCNR accounts. Fixed Deposit scheme is offered by both banking
& non- banking institutions and agencies.
NRIs can also invest their money into Indian stock market through the Portfolio Investment
Scheme (PIS). Therefore, an NRI first need to get an NRE or NRO bank account opened and
also a Demat and trading account further to deal in equity in the Indian Stock Market.
NRI Investments would start from INR 4999/-
